For they all saw Him and were terrified. But immediately He spoke with them and said to them, “Take courage; it is I, do not be afraid.” Mark 6:50
The disciples were caught in the midst of a storm, they feared for their lives. Then they saw Jesus, their Lord and Savior, coming to save them but they were still afraid. Jesus said to them, Take courage, It is I
Its easy for us to get caught up in the events of the storm. Our minds quickly think about the worst case scenario, our faith quickly fades away. But Jesus is telling us to “Take Courage”, “Don’t be afraid”.
We need to understand that Jesus has overcome the world. There is nothing, no storm that is greater than our God. Just like the disciples in the boat, we need to fix our eyes on Jesus and not on the storm.
“Be strong and courageous, do not be afraid or tremble at them, for the LORD your God is the one who goes with you. He will not fail you or forsake you 31:6
Jesus was with them even in the storm, he didn’t leave or forsake them. Even though they thought they were going to die, Jesus was not going to allow that to happen. We need to “Take Courage”, Be strong and courageous just as God has commanded us. Fix your eyes on the one who can save you , not the storm in Jesus name Amen
